I love to be alone with my clean white canvas deciding where to start, my favourite thing is watching it come alive.
I can tell you that the discovery of local free-range eggs from hens not treated with hormones or antibiotics and produced by people WHO CARE right here in Antigua made me want to whoop with joy.
Given the colour palette of the Caribbean where tropical seas meet the myriad of greens of the rainforest and then the flowers that bloom all year round: Carmen Miller with her eye for design splendidly captures it all on her extraordinary and stunning hand painted scarves.
Who doesn't want a burst of Antiguan black pineapple blended with ginger, cardamom and cinnamon - iced and refreshing with passion fruit jellies or mango bubbles?
This is the story of an extraordinary talent wrapped up in a gorgeous man.
I came here with an open mind and discovered that it could be opened even further. So here I am, dancing on the beach.
I am excited to introduce you today to Naomi Millard from Carib Bean Coffee to discuss a little about the coffee business and a little about what she loves about Antigua.
It turned out to be one of those sublime experiences where I just had to order dessert and coffee as I didn't want to leave too soon.
Lemons, ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper, mint - a hot list of ingredients to cool you down! Try this tropical and refreshing drink the next time you invite some friends over.
Here is a little sunshine from Antigua, wishing you all a happy August!
